Wonderful Experience at the James Chicago
From the moment we walked in until we checked out, the James Chicago was the perfect hotel. We were warmly greeted by the front desk staff, especially the delightful Rachel, swiftly checked in and were informed about the wine and snacks in the lobby in the afternoon. The decor of the lobby and the rooms are gorgeous and the amenities are top notch. Service was exceptional - we needed more of the triple filtered water and an additional bathrobe and they were delivered in minutes. We had breakfast in the hotel one day and that was excellent. The staff was also very helpful with recommending restaurants and activities for our Girls Trip. The location is walking distance to many shops, restaurants and local attractions. I will definitely be coming back!

Solid hotel in a great location
Beautiful hotel, lovely rooms. The drawbacks that we did not foresee were (1) elevators were a cluster - very slow service with only 2 servicing the hotel (budget at least 5 minutes to get up/down, but it will feel like 30 minutes if you are in a rush!) and (2) our initial room had a very odd musty smell (when we called, we were immediately moved - great service).

The information from the people behind the desk was inconsistent with various employees contradicting each other. The room was comfortable enough. The location was excellent!!
